It looks a little like Queen Henrietta Maria but I'm probably wrong.

Does anyone know anything about the French actress La Barre who was Willem II's mistress? I do not even know her first name. Any information would be appreciated.

It was interesting to learn that Princess Mary had the additional name of Henrietta. Previously I had only seen references of her as Princess Mary or Mary Stuart.

Mary's mother-in-law, Amalia, would not even allow Mary to name her own son.

Of all the princesses of Orange I would say that she was the one that was most disliked. Both by the country as by the Dutch family.

Although it was traditional for the bride's family to provide a dowry, it was the Dutch wedding party who brought 200,000 pounds to King Charles I as a gift.

I'm a bit puzzled to why you're so adamant about getting the name of the man accurate while you dismiss the woman he apparently slept with as a hooker not even worth a first name.
